Here's The Best Thing About Oscars 2011, Besides Colin, Natalie & Melissa Leo's F-Bomb

user
By Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   If you wonder what people inside the industry are thinking tonight, get this: The 83rd Annual Oscar presentation was very... independent. In fact, while many derided the indy-minded Spirit Awards for cold weather and water-logged press tents, the Oscars were roundly applauded for their brave indie choices... warm green rooms, and great Wolfgang Puck food, of course. Here's proof from our friends at IFTA:  INDEPENDENT FILMS...

Producers Guild Prize Creates Oscar Upset

user
  With THE SOCIAL NETWORK winning top prize at both last week's Golden Globe Awards and with other critics associations, the inevitability of its winning the Best Picture Oscar seemed more than assured. However, this past weekend's upset win for its closest challenger has now made the Oscar race less certain then it was a few days ago. The Producers Guild of America (PGA) is one of the most reliable guilds when it comes to predicting Oscar success. It is the only one that actually...

The BUFF Blog (January 2011)

user
No matter how many times BUFF ventures down to Soho to get entertained, the result is always the same. And no matter how you dress it up, January is almost invariably a month-long period of attrition, angst and apathy. So it seemed perfectly reasonable to expect a good time to be had when yours truly was invited down to Soho on a cold and wet Friday evening for a preview screening of ‘David is Dying’ – the debut feature-length drama penned, and produced by Stephen Lloyd Jackson and Andy ...

Golden Globe Round Up 2011

user
In 2009 The Golden Globe ceremony didn't have a host. The actors/actresses just came out to present and announce the winner. I don't remember what they did for an opening, but a joke monologue isn't the only way to open the show with energy. I don't want to be a Pollyanna or someone who only accepts niceties and tact, but I felt some of host Ricky Gervais', blunt, roast type humor may have been unnecessary. Do I feel this way because we're talking about Hollywood Royalty, like J...
